Riders often tell me that they swear their limitations 'are all in their head'. This is generally the case. Our bodies are very capable of learning new techniques; the limiting factor is the mind. In this section, we delve into the connection of mind and body, as well as giving you an understanding of how to work through your own self-perceived limitations.

  • Learn how a strong mental state can improve your riding
  • Discover how to work with your mind
  • Develop methods to allow you to assess terrain
  • Progress as you learn to understand and control the power of your mind
